Merit from Haarlem and London in 1912 Each, 
7c; dozen, 75c; hundred, $5.00. 

MRS. PRANCES KING (Groff) — Could we grow 
but a few varieties, Mrs. Frances King would be 
one of them. A most beautiful "Besnard shade" 
of flame-pink. Flowers of giant size on a spike 
growing four feet high with from eighteen to 
twenty flowers. Six to eight open at one time. 
Beautiful under artificial light. A magnificent 
variety. Each, 5c; dozen, 50c; hundred, $3.50.

a rouge, torchlike tongue, making a striking 
contrast. Each, 10c; dozen, $1.00. 

♦PANAMA (Banning) — The companion to America 
which has become very popular. A perfect Her- 

mosa-pink in color with wide open wax-like

awards. Each, 7c; dozen, 75c; hundred, $5.00.

The Taft Set of Six Ever-Blooming Roses 

COSTING $1.50 FOR $1.25. THE SET OF SIX IN 2- YEARS FOR $2.75. 

MADAME BUTTERFLY — (New.) Is Hill's glorified 
sport of Ophelia. Seen and admired by thou- 
sands. All the color tones of Ophelia are inten- 
sified, making it a harmony of bright pink, 
apricot and gold. Ophelia ranks at the top in 
popularity and Madame Butterfly will surpass 
it. It averages more petals to the bloom; it 
produces more bloom to the plant because it 
makes more branches, every one carrying a bud. 
The tight buds are a lovely shade of Indian 
oak, yellow at the base; they are unique for 
corsages and for low table decorations; the 
opening flowers are perfect in form and texture, 
clear and brilliant in color and of delicious 
fragrance. 40 cents each. 

RED RADIANCE (H. T.) — All who know that 
grand Rose Radiance will welcome this red 
form of that great favorite. Radiance is a 
Rose that does well everywhere, a fine grower 
and free bloomer, and no prettier pink Rose 
grown. Red Radiance is its exact counterpart 
except that the color is a rich deep red. 25c each. 

WHITE MAM AN COCHET (No Finer Rose Than 
This)- — This Rose attracted our attention from the 
very first time we ever saw it in flower. It is of 
the largest size, and as you will notice, the flower 
is built up, or rounded, and very double. The 
color is a pure snow-white. Sometimes outdoors 
it is tinged pink, which only adds to its great 
beauty. No Rose surpasses it in vigorous growth 
and in the immense size of its buds and flowers — ■ 
indeed, nothing in the Tea family approaches it 
in size. Deliciously fragrant. 25 cents each. 

RADIANCE — A brilliant rosy-carmine, displaying 
beautiful rich and opaline-pink tints in the open 
flower. 20 cents each. 

PRESIDENT TAFT — It is without question the most 
remarkable of all pink Roses. It has a shining, 
intense, deep pink color possessed by no other 
Rose. 20 cents each. 

ALEXANDER HILL GRAY — Its color is a solid deep 
yellow throughout. 20 cents each. 

The Washington Set of Five Dahlias 

COSTING $1.25, FOR $1.00. 

SYLVIA (or Dolly) — Flowers four to six inches 
in diameter; of fine form and full to the cen- 
ter, which is white, shaded to soft pink on the 
outer petals. In freedom of bloom next to the 
Countess of Lonsdale. A magnificent Dahlia. 
Each, 25c. 

FRINGED CENTURY — Intense rosy-carmine with 
lighter edges, fringed or cleft petals; blooms all 
summer; fine for cutting. Each, 25c. 

FLORADORA — Deep dark, rich wine-crimson, splen- 
did shaped flowers on long, upright wiry stems. 
Each, 25c. 

PRINCE OF YELLOWS — One of the best canary- 
yellows for cutting. Each, 25c. 

MATCHLESS — Deep crimson, of large size; an early 
and late bloomer. This we consider one of the 
best ten Dahlias. Very showy in the garden. 
Each, 25e. 

The McKinley Set of Four "Mums 


MARIGOLD — As a golden-yellow is unsurpassed, 
both as to size and color. A monster flower. 
Each 20c. 

OCONTO — Large white blooms; on strong stems. 
Each, 20c. 

HARVARD — Japanese reflexed, very dark crimson; 
extra. Each, 20c. 

UNAKA — A fine incurved bloom of a pleasing shade 
of pink. Each, 20c.

Johnston, S. Car. 
Dear Miss Baines: — 

I have been ordering flowers for nineteen 
years, but have never received a package in such 
perfect condition as the Begonias are, not even 
bruised. The Geraniums look as fresh as if I 
had just taken them from a pot. I am glad to 
tell you this for I feel that too often we with- 
hold a word of encouragement that would make 
easier life's burdens. 

MRS. W. J. H. 

Hartford, Kan. 
Ella V. Baines, Springfield, Ohio. 

Dear Madam : — I never have had finer Roses 
come to me than the ones you sent this spring. 
They were so well packed and fresh when re- 
ceived. All are doing well so far. Thank you. 
Very truly yours, 

MRS. R. D. C. 

Sta. B, Rt. 1, Columbus, Ohio. 
Miss Ella V. Baines. 

The Gem Collection of Roses received from you 
in March is a marvel. The three Roses each bear 
n large bud now, and their strong growth is 
surely gratifying. In size they compare favor- 
ably with Roses costing 25, 30 and 35 cents. 

W. B. 

New Orleans, La. 
Miss Baines: — 

I received my plants that you sent me yester- 
day and must say I 'was more than thankful to 
you. The plants are just grand. I don't know 
how to thank you, you sent me more than I ex- 
pected. Do I owe you any more money? Write 
and let me know, and I will send it to yon. You 
will by so doing oblige me. L. C. 

Fort Worth, Texas. 
Miss Ella V. Baines, Springfield, Ohio. 

Dear Madam — I desire to express to you my 
appreciation of the splendid quality of the "Lily 

of the Valley" you sent me. Thanks to the splen- 
did packing. The pips arrived in splendid con- 
dition and were planted at once, and after only 
six weeks they are a mass of beautiful blooms, 
every pip sending up from two to five spikes of 
beautiful blossoms, and are the admiration of all 
our visitors. 

I feel repaid many times over for the small 
trouble and expense incurred in this case and 
will remember where to order again when I wish 
such satisfactory results. 

Again thanking you, I am 

Yours very truly, 

T. S. H. 

Bison, Ark. 
Ella V. Baines: — 

Received your four little Roses and they are 
growing nicely, also the four "Mums." Other 
Roses of yours of last year are doing splendid, 
and the Killarney and Bessie Brown I got from 
you a few years ago are the most beautiful 
things in this country. Your little Roses have 
splendid roots and I have not hnd one to die. 

B. B. 

Frcsnillo, Zac, Mexico. 
Miss Ella V. Baines, Springfield, Ohio. 

My Dear Miss Baines: — I want to tell you about 
the order of (lowers and bulbs you sent to me in 
December. I have never received plants packed 
so beautifully as those were, they came through 
in perfect condition and all had started new 
leaves. The Lilacs had big, fat leaf bnds on 
them, and the nice part of it is, they didn't dry 
off -when I put them in the ground, but have just 
kept on growing. The Little "Baby" Roses are 
in full leaf now. I surely appreciate your care 
in packing them for it is such a long trip I sel- 
dom receive plants in good shape even from San 
Antonio, Texas. They came through in extremely 
short time for a package; they were only ten 
days. Thanking you again, I am. 

Very sincerely,

duces an abundance of blooms from June to Octo- 
ber. 50 cents each. No two-year to offer. 

COLUMBIA (H. T.) — This is a new American Rose, 
grown by the veteran rosarian E. G. Hill. It is a 
very vigorous grower of a true pink shade, deep- 
ening as it opens to glowing pink. A peculiarity 
of this variety is that the shades all become more 
intense until the full maturity of the open flower 
is reached, and this color is enduring. 

liant Rose. Its blood-red velvety crimson beauti- 
fully finished blooms are produced in great pro- 
fusion on erect stems; branching pure tea per- 
fume. We have no hesitation whatsoever in de- 
scribing this variety as excellent. Named in re- 
membrance of Colonel Oswald Fitzgerald — a lover 
of roses — who perished with his chief, Lord 
Kitchener. 50 cents each. No two-year to offer. 

CORNELIA — Ophelia X. Mrs. Aaron Ward. A splen- 
did cross between these two well known Roses. 
Flowers are medium to large size and very dou- 
ble. The bud is a beautiful salmon-pink. In the 
half expanded and full flowers the outer petals 
are light flesh, with the center a bright Mal- 
maison pink; base of petals bright orange. A 
strong, vigorous grower with good stem and 

iRIMSON QUEEN (H. T.) — A very strong, upright 
grower, flower large and full. Color a rich bright 
velvety crimson. A grand garden Rose, as it is 
always in bloom. 

CRUSADER — (New). A big, strong growing variety, 
robust and rugged in every characteristic. The 
growth is heavy and the flower stem strong and 
heavy. It is free flowering and the blooms are 
big and double and in color a rich velvety crim- 
son. A free flowering red Rose that is a wonder. 
40 cents. No two-year to offer. 

EDEL (H. T.) — Type, Florence Forrester; bud, very 
large; flower, very large, double, well built, state- 
ly, opens well in all weather; sweet fragrance.

ward base, passing to pure white. Foliage, bold 
and distinct; very vigorous grower; free bloomer. 
50 cents each. No two-year to offer. 

FLORENCE FORRESTER (H. T.) — Clear snow- 
white with a lemon tinge; as the flowers age they 
become a pure white ; the blooms are even larger 
than Paul Neyron. Its habit is absolutely perfect, 
and the freedom with which it flowers is marvel- 
ous. We consider this Rose the grandest of all 
whites for bedding. For size and substance has 
no equal among Hybrid Teas. Is very sweetly 
perfumed. Gold medal, National Rose Society. 

FRANCIS SCOTT KEY (H. T.) — It is very fitting 
that such a fine new Rose should be honored with 
the name of the author of the "Star Spangled 
Banner," and also that it should hail from Balti- 
more, one of whose forts was being assailed'when 
the inspiration came to the author to write our 
national anthem. The flowers are from large to 
very large, with sixty or more petals opening to 
a high center. The color is a magnificent deep 
red rose. Wherever it has been staged this Rose 
has swept all competitors from the boards and 
secured every prize it has entered for. Grand for 
the garden. 



Frank W. Dnnlop. 

FRANK W. DUNLOP — (New.) Did you see it at the 

International Flower Show at New York the past 
spring? Its record at the exhibition, winning 
silver medal for the best new pink Rose, gold 
sweepstakes medal for the best seedling in the 
show. Frank W. Dunlop was the finest flower in 
the exhibition. Claimed to be better than Mrs. 
Charles Russell. 40 cents. Two-year, $1.00 eaeh. 

GLADYS HOLLAND (H. T.) — Of magnificent form 
and size. Color buff, shaded orange-yellow, out- 
side of petals pearly-peach. Very free flowering. 
Awarded a gold medal, National Rose Society of 

GLOIRE DES BELGES (H. T.) — Growth vigorous 
and free, flowering continuously until late in the 
season. Buds oval, long; and of elegant form 
with vivid colors of carmine and cochineal. Fine 
for massing and a fine cut flower. 

GOLDEN OPHELIA — This is a sturdy, stiff-stemmed 
grower, with beautiful foliage, quite closely set, 
and glossy. The flower is of medium size from a 
beautifully formed bud of bright golden-yellow. 
Profuse bloomer. 50 cents each. Tiro-year, $1.00 

GOLDEN SPRAY (H. T.) — Unique in habit and 
growth, it sending up long arching shoots -which 
form great loose elegant sprays, every bud of 
which opens up in succession. The buds are very 
long, of deep Marechal Niel yellow, opening to al- 
most single blooms of clear lemon-yellow. Award- 
ed gold medal, National Rose Society of England. 

GORGEOUS — Flowers large and full, exquisitely- 
formed and produced in endless profusion. Deep 
orange-yellow and heavily veined with reddish- 
copper, the most charming and gorgeous coloring 
which has yet been introduced. The most strik- 
ing Rose in existence. 

HADLEY (H. T.) — In color it is a deep velvety- 
crimson, retaining its brilliancy at all seasons of 
the year. The variety is double and buds are well 
formed. The fragrance is excelled only by Amer- 
ican Beauty. It is a strong, rapid grower, and 
the flowers are borne on long, stiff stems. It has 
proven itself under thorough trial to be an all- 
the-year-jound forcing variety. 

HOOSIER BEAUTY (H. T.) — We use 

description of E. G. Hill Co.: "If 
you need a more profitable red 
Rose than the one you are grow- 
ing, 'Hoosier Beauty' is your va- 
riety. It is as fragrant as Rich- 
mond; has more petals, a stiffer 
stem, a texture like velvet. In 
color, glowing crimson-scarlet, 
with darker shadings. The bud is 
of good length, ships well in the 
close-cut state, and opens into a 
magnificent bloom, quite dazzling 
in velvety brilliance. As soon as 
thoroughly established in the soil 
sends out long, stiff growths with 
a bud on every shoot." 

HENRIETTE (H. T.) — One of 

the finest in existence for 
bedding, garden and cut- 
flower purposes; blooms 
erect on long stems; buds 
long and pointed. Color fiery 
orange-crimson, changing to 
soft coral-salmon. Very 
hardy. Free in habit. 


The introducers are to be con- 
gratulated 16 years after the ad- 
vent of Killarney in giving us this 
distinct novelty, which is undoubt- 
edly the best of the Killarney type. 
Killarney Brilliant has the same 
habit of growth and the same free- 
dom of bloom as its parent, -while 
the flower is more double. The 
color is a very brilliant pink and 
varies like Killarney. In the gar- 
den in bright weather is clear 
pink, and in dull weather almost 
crimson. Extra. 

LADY PLYMOUTH (T.) — The color is a pearly, 
delicate but deep ivory-cream, faintly flushed, 
giving it a most piquant finish that is difficult 
to describe. Awarded gold medal National Rose 
Society of England, and silver medal at Crystal 
Palace Show, London. 

LADY ROBERTS (T.) — The color is a rich gold- 
en-yellow, very free bloomer and a grand gar- 
den Rose. 

LEGION (H. T.) — Bud, well shaped, globular; flow- 
er, large full, lasting cerise-red throughout, fra- 
grant; foliage, large, glossy reddish green. Orig- 
inally named American Legion, but name changed 
because objected to by association of that name. 
50 cents each. No two-year to offer. 

LOS ANGELES (H. T.) — Los Angeles is, by all odds, 
one of the finest Roses ever introduced. The 
growth is very vigorous, and produces a continu- 
ous succession of long-stemmed flowers of a 
luminous flame-pink toned with coral and shaded 
with translucent gold at the base of the petals. 
In richness of fragrance it equals in intensity the 
finest Marechal Niel. The buds are long and 
pointed and expand into a flower of mammoth 
proportions, while the beauty of form and ever 
increasing wealth of color is maintained from the 
incipient bud until the last petal drops. 40 cents 
each. Two-year, $1.00 each. 

prising beautiful novelty raised by the introduc- 
ers of the popular Rose Jonkheer J. L. Mock, and 
honored with the award of the Gold Medal of the 
Bagatelle Gardens at Paris, 1915. It is distinct 
and peculiar in color, a pale soft pink or rose 
shaded with hydrangea-pink. The flowers are 
very large, full and fragrant, perfect in form, and 
borne on rigid stems. The growth is vigorous and 
very floriferous. 

ous grower of coppery-orange color. The color 
is very deep and clear, and holds well, which 
can be said of few yellow sorts. It is a nice 
grower, free in bloom, and those wanting a yellow 
different from "Ward" or "Sunburst" should try 
this one. 



MRS. CAMPBELL, HALL. (Tea) — Delicate creamy- 
buff, edged or suffused rosy-carmine. The center 
of the bloom is warm cerise coral-fawn. Very de- 
liciously fragrant. Awarded gold medal, N. R. S. 

MRS. CUR3VOCK SAWDAY (H. T.) — A vigorous 
grower, with bright green foliage. The welt 
shaped blooms carried erect on long stems, are 
sweetly scented. The color is a pleasing shade of 
pale blush-pink, a good garden rose in commerce. 
50 cents each. No two-year to offer. 

MRS. HENRY WINNETT (H. T.) — This is a seed- 
ling raised by John H. Dunlap, of Canada, and 
has the distinction of being the first seedling 
Rose of Canadian origin that has been offered in 
commerce. In color it is a bright shade of crim- 
son, not so dark as Hadley, and not so light as 
Richmond. It is a color that pleases the retail 
storeman and his patrons. The finest of all the 
red or crimson varieties. The buds are long and 
well formed. A superb red Rosa. 40 cents. No 
two-year to offer. 

MRS. HENRY MORSE (H. T.)— Bud very large, long 
pointed, flower very large, high center, double, 
fragrant, color flesh-cream ground with a sheen 
of bright rose, deeply impregnated and washed 
vermilion with clear vermilion veinings on pet- 
als; very vigorous grower, bearing an abundance 
of bloom. 50 cents each. No two-year to offer. 

MRS. JOHN COOK — White, suffused with delicate-, 
pink, describes the color of this strong-growing,, 
big-flowered daughter of Ophelia. The color- 
varies with the season, the flush of pink being 
more pronounced during cool weather, while the 
Rose is almost white during the long days of 
bright sunshine. In bud it is nicely formed, the 
mature flower opening cup-shaped but expanding 
fully to a large and finely-formed bloom. It is 
bigger and better in summer than White Killar- 
ney and, with its delicate pink in dark weather is 
a very charming color. 50c. No two-year to offer. 

MRS. MACKELLAR (H. T.) — The glorious blooms 
make this an imposing Rose. A deep citron or 
delicate pure canary color. As the large blooms 
gracefully expand the guard petals charmingly 
reflex and become pearly primrose-white of great 
decorative beauty. Award of merit (unanimous), 
R. H. S., London. 

Madame Butterfly. 

MADAME BUTTERFLY — (New.) Is Hill's glorified 
sport of Ophelia. Seen and admired by thousands. 
All the color tones of Ophelia are intensified, mak- 
ing it a harmony of bright pink, apricot and gold. 
Ophelia ranks at the top in popularity and Mad- 
ame Butterfly will surpass it. It averages more 
petals to the bloom; it produces more bloom to 
the plant because it makes more branches, every- 
one carrying a bud. The tight buds are a lovely 
shade of Indian oak, yellow at the base; they are 
unique for corsages and for low table decorations; 
the opening flowers are perfect in form and tex- 
cure, clear and brilliant in color and of delicious 
fragrance. 40 cents. Two-year, $1.00 each. 

MISS WILMOT (H. T.) — The most refined and 
charming Rose ever raised. There is an appeal- 
ing sweetness about this most distinct variety 
that will please lovers of Roses all the world over. 
The color is practically a uniform soft sulphury- 
cream, with the faintest flush towards the edges. 
In shape and form this Rose is a model of perfec- 
tion, every flower comes perfect and produced 
with a freedom that is marvelous. A wonderful 
garden Rose. Gold medal, N. R. S. 40 cents. No 
two-year to offer. 

MR. P. L. BAUDET (H. T.) — Color carmine-rose 
flecked with salmon-yellow, center darker. Flow- 
ers large and full, vigorous in growth, continuous 
in bloom. A unique two-tone Rose. 

SIRS. BRYCE ALLAN (H. T.) — Strong Moss-rose 
perfume. Color carmine-rose. Flowers globular 
in form, very erect stems, deep green foliage. 

MRS. CHARLES BELL (Pierson, 1918) — This new 
Rose will appeal to those who grow Roses out 
of doors. It may be described as a shell-pink 
Radiance, and is a sport of that well known Rose. 
It has no characteristics which make it distinct 
from Radiance except that it is shell-pink. Mrs. 
Chas. Bell Red Radiance and Radiance offer a 
range of color that will be welcome. No finer 
garden Roses for America than these three. 

MRS. CHARLES RUSSELL, (H. T.) — This wonderful 
new American Rose has taken the country by 
storm. No other forcing Rose except "American 
Beauty" can compete with it when it comes to 
• counting points. Stems three feet long stiff and 
surmounted by grand rosy-pink blooms of the 
largest size and build. 40c. No two-year to offer. 


(See description o* 1 page 6.) 



NATIONAL EMBLEM (H. T.) — Dark crimson, of 
perfect shape, habit and inflorescence; as a bed- 
ding, massing and cutting Rose it is unique. Buds 
.long and pointed, opening to large, full, handsome 
flowers of great beauty, flowering freely and 

OPHELIA- — Salmon-flesh shaded with rose, large, 
and of perfect shape; of excellent habit; the 
flowers standing up well on long, stiff stems and 
produced in great profusion. Excellent for forc- 
ing and a fine decorative variety. Growth vigor- 
ous. Certainly a glorious Rose. Be sure to have 
"Ophelia" fixed in your memory. 

PILGRIM — (New.) In color, a beautiful shade of. 
bright rose-pink. The bud, which opens per- 
fectly, is long and of ideal form. Pilgrim is a 
Rose of good substance and petalage, and at any 
stage of development is perfect in color and form 
of flower. Its pronounced tea fragrance will 
attract all Rose lovers. It is prolific and highly

Hillingdon and Melody, showing an attractive 
shade of soft golden-yellow in the bud and half

IxceSsior" List of Ever-Blooming Roses 

New and Choice for Outdoor Planting or House Culture 

Price, 20 cents each; any three of yonr own selection for 50 cents. Two-year plants, 40 cents each; three 

for $1.00. 

For general planting, more especially in open ground, this class excels all others. One-year-old plants, 
such as we send by mail, bloom the first and each succeeding year from early spring until severe frosts. 
Two-year-old plants, of course, yield a greater profusion of flowers, owing to their size. The flowers are 
noted for their exquisite coloring and delightful fragrance; hardy everywhere in open ground with pro- 
tection of litter, leaves, evergreen boughs or similar materials. Plant liberally of one-year-old Roses; 
the harvest of bloom they give the first year compensates for the" trifling outlay. Anyone can succeed 
with them.

miniature Roses. While Europe has appreciated these Roses for years, America is just beginning to 
wake up to the fact that they have come to stay. They are useful either pot grown or for bedding pur-

popular Baby Pink Rose. It is also known as 
Sweetheart and Mignon. In the past year or two 
this Rose has fairly jumped into popularity. It 

always was a popular outdoor Rose on the Pacific 
Coast, but recently even in the effete East and 
everywhere in America they are planting it sim- 
ply by thousands for cut flowers. It has become 
quite the rage. It makes a handsome miniature 
Rose, coming in sprays of three to five buds and 
combined in beautiful effect with so many other 
flowers in all kinds of floral work. It is a very 
prolific bloomer and if carefully protected in the 
winter should be a money-maker, both outdoors 
and under glass. The bud and flower are both 
handsome. Color, blush, shaded light salmon- 
pink; distinct and desirable. 

MBS. WM. H. CUTBISH — Flowers the delicate pink 
of Dorothy Perkins.

Baby Dorothy. 

New Polyantha, or Baby Roses 

Price 25 Cents Each ; Two-Year Plants, 60 Cents. 

BABY DOROTHY — This is a glorious Rose. Flowers 
resemble the Dorothy Perkins. Completely hides 
the plant with its bloom. 

BABY ECHO — The best Polyantha produced. Color 
rosy-flesh color. Of splendid strong growth and 
freedom of bloom, which are of wonderful keeping, 
qualities either on or off the plant. This is the 
improved Baby Tausendschoen. It has more sub- 
stance and more color, and is the best of all Baby 
Roses for pot culture. Be sure and try this one. 

TIES — Its flowers are large, so much like Thou- 
sand Beauties, that it has been rechristened Bab^ r 
Thousand Beauties. It is a bush form of the 
Thousand Beauties, having all the charm of the 
variable coloring in its flowers that its parent 
has, being firm, white, delicately flushed pink, 
changing to deep rosy-carmine. A splendid Rose. 
Try it. 

EDITH CAVELL — Bright crimson; white eye; very 
beautiful. One of the best new Baby Roses. 

ture to yourself the Fairy or Sweetheart Rose 
("Cecile Brunner"), colored up like the Daily Mail 
Rose ("Mme. Edouard Herriot"), only brighter and 
more brilliant than when that variety is at its 
best, and you will have some conception of the 
beauty of this little gem which on account of the 
similarity in color has been known among the 
cut flower trade as Baby Herriot. Its color is a 

shrimp-pink with intense, coppery-scarlet suffu- 
sion, the base of the petals golden-yellow which 
intensifies and lightens up its high colors. Plant 
is of free growth and floriferous. We are certain 
that Baby Herriot will please everyone. 

GEORGE ELGER — A lovely little golden-yellow 
Polyantha Rose, with a good admixture of Tea 
blood; like all of its class, it is free in growth 
free in bloom, with small, glossy foliage produced 
in profusion. The dainty little pointed yellow 
buds open into pretty little symmetrical Roses. 
Will prove a very popular corsage variety; is 
grown in quantity now for this purpose. 

GRUSS AN AACHEN — Yellowish-rose colored with 
salmon-pink and red shadings; full, strong, free 
blooming and disease proof; erect and of moder- 
ate growth. Owing to the size and beauty of its 
flowers and its symmetrical growth, this variety 
is highly recommended for low, bright massing. 

LE MARNE — Dwarf, perpetual flowering Polyantha. 
Semi-double flowers, bright salmon-rose at the 
edges, rosy-blush inside. Blooms abundantly and 
continuously in bouquets of fifteen to forty flow- 
ers. Has fine keeping qualities.

Price, 25 Cents Each ; Two-Year Old Plants, 60 Cents Each 

ORLEANS — The showiest and prettiest of all the 
Baby Ramblers. This charming and dainty Rose 
rts of beautiful rounded habit and is a huge bou- 
quet of deep cerise or Geranium-pink, with dis- 
tinct showy center of pure white ; florets not 
Growded, but of beautiful arrangement, making 
as a \rhole a charming combination that cannot 
be Uneaten. Color is irresistible. Plant grows 
like n weed and the flowers are nearly "immor- 

telle" in their lasting qualities. Awarded gold 
TIP TOP, "Baby Doll" — This delightful little "Sweet- 
heart" Rose is a wonder. The color is absolutely

yellow tipped with clear, bright cerise. The foli- 
age is narrow, long and sharply pointed, a deep 
glossy green — a very beautiful setting for the 
lovely little doll roses, a bench of "Baby Doll" be- 
ing an even parterre of delicious color.

'Collection. Try them. Price, 25 cents each; the entire twelve for $2.50. Two-year-old plants, 50 cents 
teach; the entire twelve for $5.00. 

ANTOINE RIVOIRE — This is the famous Mrs. Taft 
Rose of the fashionable Eastern markets. This 
Rose is in a class by itself; no Rose ever pro- 
duced has such substance of petal; color creamy- 
white with rainbow tints; a beauty and a wonder. 

BESSIE BROWN — A Rose of transcendent beauty; 
of the largest size; color pearly-white with a deli- 
cate tinge of fawn. 

ETOILE DE FRANCE — For the best red garden 
Rose it lies between this one, Rhea Reid and 
Helen Gould. Some say one and some say the 

ETOILE DE LYON — Still the best large golden-yel- 
low Rose. 

HELEN GOULD — A rich red Rose that is a great 
bloomer; the shade of red has been described best 
as a watermelon-red; elegant. 

HELEN GOOD (The Beauty Cochet) — What the in- 
troducers say: "This is a true Cochet Rose, and 
after two years' trial in the garden we pronounce 
it as good if not better than any Rose for the 
garden ever sent out. We bought "the entire stock 
of this Rose, paying $1,000 for two plants, this 
toeing by far the highest recorded price ever paid 
for any Rose. The color is a delicate yellow suf- 
fused with pink, each petal edged deeper, very 
chaste and beautiful. The color, with its immense 
size and exquisite form, makes it without ques- 
tion the greatest Tea Rose ever introduced, and 
we are proud to have brought it out." 

garden Rose that has stood the test of time. Full 
and double; fine buds and flowers. 

MAMAN COCHET (The Queen of all Garden Roses) 
—Such beauty and exquisite form as is possessed 
toy this variety is well-nigh marvelous, and can- 
not be seen in any other Rose we know of. The 
"buds are beautiful large, full and firm and ele- 
gantly pointed; as they expand they show great 
depth and richness sometimes measuring two and 
a half inches from base to tip. Flowers superb 
when open, extra large, perfectly double and of 

splendid substance. Small pot plants will in the 
open ground quickly make large, strong bushes 
and produce, on long, stiff stems, great numbers 
of perfect flowers that are enchanting in fra- 
grance and delicate brightness. The color is rich, 
clear pink, changing to a silvery-rose. As we 
see it, one good Rose like any of the Cochet Roses 
is worth a whole collection of poor ones. 

PRESIDENT TAFT (McCullough, 1908.) — This Rose 
■was raised in Cincinnati, the home of President 
Taft, and let us say right here, while some of you 
may not admire the President himself, you will, 
one and all, admire the Rose given his name. It 
is without question the most remarkable of all 
pink roses. It has a shining, intense, deep pink 
color possessed by no other Rose. It is a fine 
grower, free bloomer, good size and form, fra- 
grant and in a class by itself as to color. Our Mr. 
Frank Good, who is probably familiar with more 
Roses than any man in America, says: "Talk all 
you want to about the Rose President Taft, and 
then vou will not say enough." 

RADIANCE (Cook, 1909.) — A brilliant rosy-carmine, 
displaying beautiful rich and opaline-pink tints 
in the open flower. The form is fine, largest size 
and full, with cupped petals. It blooms con- 
stantly and is delightfully fragrant. This is a 
superior Rose. 

This) — This Rose attracted our attention from the 
very first time we ever saw it in flower. It is of 
the largest size, and as you will notice, the flower 
is built up, or rounded and very double. The 
color is a pure snow-white. Sometimes outdoors 
it is tinged Pink, which only adds to its great 
beauty. No Rose surpasses it in vigorous growth 
and in the immense size of its buds and flowers — 
indeed, nothing in the Tea family approaches it 
in size. Deliciously fragrant. 

WM. R. SMITH — .This Rose has several names, such 
as Charles Dingee, Jeanette Heller, Maiden's 
Blush, etc. Color delicate blush. It has no su- 
perior as a garden Rose.

Carinas are called the poor man's Orchid because one may possess a perfect riot of color in his yard 
or garden for the minimum of both outlay and labor. They grow rapidly and bloom luxuriantly through- 
out a long season, requiring merely ordinary hoeing and weeding, and they always respond to plenty 
of water. Soak the ground thoroughly. Planted in beds of any formal shape, in rows or in front of 
porches and foundation walls, their rich, tropical foliage and bright bloom will repay their care and the 
insignificant trouble of winter storage. 

35 cents each; $3.50 per dozen; $30.00 per hundred.

scarlet, with bright red markings, while the foli-

bronze with brownish green markings. Five feet.

perior to any other red variety in the quality and

For beauty of flower and color, ease of culture, certainty and freedom of bloom, together with ex- 
quisite fragrance, this is well called the "Divine Flower." Plants in the open ground or in pots quickly 
make large specimens, and when brought indoors in the fall produce an abundance of flowers throughout 
the entire winter. Carnation blooms are expensive; don't buy them — grow them yourself. Pinch the 
plant back frequently during the summer season. In the fall bring indoors, place in a four or five-inch 
pot. keep in a temperature of forty or fifty degrees at night, and thev will vield an immense number of 
flowers with splendid stems, as fine as those sold by florists. If not pinched in they will bloom profuse- 
ly during the summer. We otter the finest varieties in existence. Your order is incomplete without some

ern states, as far as the plant is concerned, but they must flower before early frosts to be of service.

Hardy Pompon Chrysanthemums 

These beautiful varieties are again very popular for outdoor bedding purposes. They are quite hardy, 
and with but a slight covering of leaves or coarse stable litter during the winter will take care of them- 
selves after once planted, and produce an abundant, almost lavish, profusion of bloom; and the plants 
lend a coloration to the garden just at a time when other plants have been destroyed by frost and are 
looking their worst. Frost does not materially affect the flowering, and it will frequently happen that 
an armful of flowers can be cut after a sharp frost. 

Price, 20 cents each; any three for 50 cents; the set of eleven for $1.75.

No garden is complete without a show of these brilliant and stately autumn flowers, and nothing 
gives greater return for so little money and care. We offer dry bulbs or tubers, but if stock of these 
becomes exhausted, will send started plants. We grow and sell fifteen acres of Dahlias each year.

characterized by long, narrow, pointed, tubular and twisted petals 
of graded lengths, giving the flowers a striking and attractive 
appearance. Grand for cut flowers.

as in Lonsdale, in Springfield are a rich amaran- 
thine-red. Its beauty cannot be described. No

There are no plants grown that are more desirable for the house than the following fine decorative 
Ferns. They are easily grown, free from insects and disease, and thrive well in the ordinary temperature 
of the living room. See that the plants have plenty of drainage and are kept well watered; never let dry 
out for any length of time. Everyone of these Xephrolepis Ferns is entirely distinct in every way. That 
we are headquarters for Ferns is evidenced by the choice assortment that we offer. So other firm offers 
so many distinct and choice varieties. Try us for Ferns. 

The "Teddy Junior Fern" 

Xcphrolepis Teddy Junior 

'.'Teddy Junior," -the Fern for - every household. 
This grand Fern was introduced recently by G. & R. 
The fronds are broad and beautifully tapered from 
base to tip; they droop just enough to make a 
shapely, graceful plant,, permitting it to finish with 
a fine full center and perfect symmetrical spread. 
The pinnae are distinctly undulated, giving the 
fronds an attractive wavy appearance, which adds 
materially to their charming decorative effect. 
"Teddy Junior" will produce about four times more 
fronds than any other Fern ever introduced, finish- 
ing" with fifty to sixty fronds in a four-inch pot. 
Fine young plants, 25 cents; strong plants, 75 cents. 

The "Roosevelt Fern" 

Xephrolepis Roosevelt 

It is our, good fortune and great pleasure to offer 
this wonderful new Fern, having introduced it in 
1910. In this short time it stands second in popu- 
larity of all the Ferns, and will soon be more popu- 
lar than even the old favorite Boston Fern. In 
general characteristics it resembles- the world- 
famous Boston Fern, but it will sweep that Fern 
from the boards for two reasons; it produces many 
more fronds than the Boston; thus making a 
bushier, handsomer plant; then the pinnae are | 
beautifully undulated, giving the "Roosevelt" a 
pronounced wavy effect seen in no other Fern; as 
the plant ages this effect becomes quite distinct. A 
charming and most notable variety. Fine young 
plants, 25 cents each; strong plants, 75 cents. 

New Fern Liberty 

This is our own production. In the past we have 
sent out Baby's Breath, Teddy Junior and Roose- 
velt, the three greatest Ferns today, acknowledged 
so by all plantsmen and flower lovers, and now we 
add another one to the galaxy, "Liberty," no doi:bt 
the best of them. All the fronds have finely divided 
pinnae that give them a very beautiful appearance, 
while the whole plant is overlaid with a bluish cast 
that makes of it a very striking object. "Wonder- 
fully beautiful, different from all other Ferns. First 
time offered.. , Fjne young plants, 35 cents each; 
strong plants, §1.00 each. Be sure and try this beau- 
tiful Fern. 

The "Newport Fern" 

Xephrolepis Scotti 

Of much dwarfer and bushier growth than the 
Boston Fern. The fronds droop gracefully, and are 
not as long and heavy as the Boston, it is a rapid 
grower, and to see it in all stages of growth from 
a runner in the bench to a 14-inch pot specimen will 
convince you that it will be in great demand as a 
house Fern. This has always been a favorite va- 
riety. Fine young plants, 30c; strong plants, 75c. 

The "Parlor Fern" 

IVephrolepis "Whitmanii Compacta 

This is a condensed form of the "Ostrich Plume" 
Fern, with valuable characteristics added which are 
.not evident in the parent, the pinnae subdividing, 
making miniature fronds which are superimposed 
on the main fronds, looking as if two or more "were 
condensed into one. Graceful beyond description. 
Fine young plants, 35 cents; strong plants, 75 cents. 

The "Philadelphia Lace Fern" 

Xephrolepis Elegantissima 

The small size pinnae, or leaflets, are subdivided 
into perfect miniature fronds the side pinnae stand 
at right angles to the midrib of the fronds, on edge 
instead of flat, giving both sides of the main frond 
yie same beautiful appearance. It is impossible to 
conceive of the beauty and grace of this wonderful 
Fern from the description. Fine young plants^ 3.% 
cents ; strong plants, 75 cents. 

The "Big Four" Fern 

Xephrolepis Splendida 

This is the most wonderful Fern of them all; it 
originated with G. & R., and is now offered for the 
first time. It combines the good qualities of the 
four most popular sorts. It has the grace of a 
"Boston," the wavy effect of a "Roosevelt," the 
fluffy effect of an "Ostrich Plume," and the unique- 
ness of a "Fish Tail." Some fronds will be straight 
"Boston," others will be true "Roosevelt," in others 
the ends of the pinnae will be the feathery "Ostrich 
Plume," while in others the ends of the pinnae will 
be the genuine "Fish Tail." Then again some frond? 
will have in a marked degree all of these desirable 
traits, forming a combination without parallel 
among Ferns. It well deserves the name of "Bit. 
Four Fern." Everyone who sees it goes "daffy" 
about it. This is without question the most splen- 
did of all.the Nephrolepis. Be sure and -try it. Fine 
young plants, 25 cents each ; strong plants, 75 cents* 



Beautiful House Ferns — Concluded 




In the vicinity of 
Boston, no other 
plant is so extensive- 
ly used as this grace- 
ful Nep-hrolepis, 
which differs from 
the ordinary Sword 
Fern in having much 
longer fronds, which 
frequently attain a 
length of six feet. 
These arch and 
droop over very 
grace! ully, on ac- 
count of which it is 
frequently called the 
Fountain Fern. This 
drooping habit 
makes it an excellent 
plant to grow as a 
single specimen on a 
table or pedestal. 
This Fern should not 
be compared with the 
Ostrich Plume Fern, 
as they are of an en- 
tirely different 
growth. Fine young 
plants, 25 cents; 
strong plants, 75 

The "Wannamaker Fern" 

IVephrolepis John Wannamaker 

A new Fern of -wonderful beauty. Long, narrow, 
gracefully drooping fronds. It is not so compact as 
Scholzeli, and, therefore, is a very airy and graceful 
Fern, and very durable in the house. A rapid grow- 
er; quite distinct from other Ferns. Fine young 
plants, 30 eents; strong plants, 75 eents. 

The "Ostrich Plume Fern" 

Nephrolepis Whiimanii 

A great Fern. In fact, it is a plant that appeals 
to everyone, and on that account will prove a much 
more valuable and profitable plant than other Ferns 
of this class. Everyone who has seen it is charmed 
with it. As someone has expressed it, "There is 
nothing like the Ostrich Plume Fern in cultivation. 
In decorative effect it so far outdistances the orig- 
inal variety that there is positively no comparison 
to be made. We consider it the most valuable nov- 
elty that has been introduced in many, many years." 
It has taken gold medals wherever shown. Fine 
young plants, 35 cents; strong plants, US cents. 

Fern Smithii 

A new type of the Ostrich Plume family. The 
frond is very compact and the pinnae are finely 
serrated, giving it the appearance of a strong- 
feathery plume. Fine young plants, 5(1 eents each, 
No large size to offer. 

The" Old Original Sword Fern" 

IVephrolepis Exaltata 

This is the "old original Sword Fern," the "daddy" 
of them all, the one plant from which all the Ne- 
phrolepis we offer sprang. It is entirely different 
from any of its progeny, having narrow fronds that 
are long and of very erect growth. For this reason 
it is more largely used as a centerpiece in vases 
SPECIAIi OFFER — The Fifteen Beautiful Ferns as 
Ferns in strong plants, cost 

than are any -of its descendants. Fine young plants, 
35 cents; strong plants, 75 eents. 

The "Crested Fern" 

IVephrolepis Scholzeli 

The fronds are crested and stand erect, with a- 
graceful arch, forming a plant of ideal shape, and 
they never break down, giving the plant a ragged 
appearance, as is so often the case with other 
plumed forms; furthermore, the loose, elegant ar- 
rangement of the fronds, allowing a free circulation 
of air through the foliage, prevents the center of 
even the largest specime-n from becoming defective 
or yellow. Fine young plants, 25 cents each; large 
plants, 50 cents. 

The "Baby's Breath Fern" 

Nephrolepis Goodii 

This has the finest foliage of all the Ferns. It is 
so delicate that a lady on seeing it exclaimed, "Call 
it the Baby's Breath Fern, as it is so dainty in tex- 
ture that a baby's breath would set its fluffy foliage 
in motion." The fronds are very fine and filmy, on 
which account it has been called by some the Lace 
Fern. It is an improved variety, and the best of its 
type. Nothing is daintier or more exquisite than 
well grown specimens in any size. Fine young 
plants, 50 cents; strong plants, $1.00. 

The "Fluffy Ruffles Fern" 

IVephrolepis Superbissima 

This new Fern is quite different from all other 
Ferns. Its distinguishing characteristics are its 
dark green foliage, darker than any other Fern, its 
dense growth, much more compact, and its irregular 
shaped fronds, which give it the name of "Fluffy 
Ruffles Fern." The fronds are very heavily imbri- 
cated, the pinnae overlapping, and so formed as to 
resemble miniature Ferns, giving it the appearance 
of a Fern within, a Fern. The plant is very sturdy 
in its habit. Fine young plants, 75 cents. Wo large 
size to offer.

Pansy Geranium, Mrs. LAYAL 

A Wonderful Plant. 

This new and wonderful Pansy Geranium is of the 
easiest growth, dwarf in habit, and literally covered 
with flowers all the time; and as it requires little or no 
attention, it is invaluable as a window plant. The 
coloring and markings of the flowers are most extraor- 
dinary — light pink, white, dark purple, black, etc., al- 
most rivaling the Pansy in uniqueness .of flower. It is 
this combination of coloring which obtained for it the 
popular name of Pansy Geranium. Strong plants, ready 
to bloom, 30 cents each, two for 50 cents. 

Pansy Geranium. 

Pelargonium, or Lady Washington Geraniums 

The grandest of all flowering plants; do not resemble the common Geraniums in any particular, neither 
in foliage nor flower; more beautiful in every way. We here offer six distinct sorts, every one entirely 
different in color and every one a beauty. The Lady Washington Geraniums are the handsomest of all 
flowers — once seen, never forgotten. 

The Easter Greeting, or Ever-Blooming Set 


EASTER GREETING — Planted out as a bedding 
plant it will bloom continually until late in the 
fall. It will prove the forerunner of a new race 
of ever-blooming kinds, as it rivals the Orchids 
in beauty. This new species is the earliest of all 
Pelargoniums, with enormous florets and clusters, 
having light green foliage and of dwarf, robust 
growth. It blooms from March until fall. Florets 
fiery amaranth-red, with five large, regular shaped 
spots. The first and only kind to bloom as well 
bedded out as in pots, and to do so all summer. 

GARDENER'S JOY — The ground color is apple-blos- 
som pink, the two upper petals have blotches of 
carbon-brown, the florets are three and one-half 
inches in diameter and are joined to enormous 
clusters which rise above the beautiful foliage 
and remind one of a Rhododendron cluster. It is 
of a half dwarf nature and very sturdy. On ac- 
count of its rapid, luxuriant growth it is a very 
profitable market variety. 



Pelargonium, or Lady Washington Geraniums — Concluded 

GL.ORY — This splendid novelty is quite remontant, 
florets and cluster very large; ground color, Catt- 
leya-blue, very much like the Cattleya Orchid. 
The upper petals contain two large purple ma- 
genta-red spots, distinctly veined. An exceed- 
ingly beautiful and entirely new color in Pelar- 
goniums. This kind has a very robust growth. 

LIBERTY — A glorious flower of salmon-red, with 
large velvety, sharply defined blotches bordered 
with scarlet. Has all the good qualities of Easter 
Greeting, its parent, having gigantic trusses. 
Equally valuable as a pot plant or for bedding 

LUCY BECKER — This grand novelty is a sport of 
Easter Greeting, and is like it in everything but 
color which is a rosy-pink. It is if anything even 
more free in bloom. 

PRINCE — Immensely large flowers, strongly crimped 
of fine shade, with from six to ten petals; color 
rich purple with velvety black blotches. Remark- 
ably robust habit. The large clusters rise grace- 
fully above the beautiful foliage. The blooming 
plant with its enormous flowers makes a striking

large, compact trusses of silver-rose flowers very 

ETIKCETANTI — A clear carmine. A clean, vigorous 
grower of unusual merit. 

SATINET — This variety is so radiant that it re- 
sembles a dainty piece of stain, probably the best 

of all the French Hydrangeas. Color a beautiful 
TEOPHEE — The reddest red. A vigorous grower, 
free bloomer, of a deeper shade than Lilie Mouil- 
lere. Has been accorded the most unreserved 
praise of any variety grown by us. A real red 
and an excellent actor. 



Let us tell our friends that these new French Hydrangeas are the most meritorious plants brought 
out in years. They have enormous trusses of bloom that completely hide the plant. They are half hardy 
and may be planted in the latitude of Philadelphia and in the Gulf and Pacific states. They are also fine 
as house plants, blooming in the spring time about Easter. When kept at a temperature of 70 degrees out 
of doors they bloom about June. All the following New Hydrangeas, young plants, 30c; strong plants, 50c.

made a reputation for itself .during the past two 
seasons. An easy variety to force.

after planting they grow into greater value, producing more and more flowers. They are not troubled 
with insect pests. Try some of our fine Peonies, and see what grand flowers they are. Get it out of 
your head that there are only Red, White and Pink Peonies to illustrate at flowering time. People who

This is one of the prettiest and daintiest of all 
Lilies. It is pure white with bands of a greenish 
color through the flower; this green and the white 
make a charming combination that everyone ad- 
mires. The filaments and stamens of this choice 
Lily resemble a huge spider; not repulsive, but the 
most beautiful and delicate of all lilies. Each, 40c; 
three for SI. 00. 

Lily of the Valley 

The modest bell-shaped flowers, of the purest 
white, are highly prized for cutting purposes, and 
for flowering in pots in winter they are exceedingly 
well adapted. Beautiful and most interesting orna- 
mental designs for the parlor or conservatory may 
be produced by planting Lily crowns in Crocus pots 
or in pyramidal pots made especially for this pur- 
pose and pierced with holes. They will last several 
weeks in beauty. By taking them in at intervals a 
succession of different designs may be kept up all 
winter. They are also forced in immense quantities 
by florists, but they are the most charming when 
grown in large patches in partially shaded locali- 
ties around the lawn, near the borders of streams, 
lakes, etc., being perfectly hardy. Price, 4 cents 
each; 40 cents per dozen; 25 for 75c.

The Ever-Blooming Butterfly Bush 

Bnddleya Variabilis Magnifica (Butterfly Bush). 

It was a matter of some thought before this 
highly desirable plant was Anally christened with 
the common English name by which it goes. Sev- 
eral years ago there were imported from Europe 
some plant novelties and this one was among them. 
"We observed it carefully for a season and were 
charmed with its beauty, ease of culture and free 
flowering habit. The name Butterfly Bush was ap- 
plied to it because it seems to attract butterflies in 
large numbers. Particularly we notice that it is 
not alone the common little yellow species of but- 
terfly, but also the large and gorgeously colored 
hutterflies that swarm about it as though vieing 
with it in brilliancy of color. This shrub from a 
young plant set out either in the spring or fall, will 
mature to full size the first summer, producing a 
handsome bush, which the first year often main- 
tains a height of four feet It produces long, grace- 

ubs are an important feature in the adornmenS of 
ays a greater part in landscape effect than is ofiten 

ful stems, which terminate in tapering panieles of 
beautiful lilac-colored flowers that are of miniature 
size and borne by the hundreds on a flower head 
which is frequently ten inches long. A single plant 
the first season will throw out as many as fifty 
flower spikes, which increase greatly in number 
during succeeding years. The year after planting,, 
it generally commences to flower in June and con- 
tinues each season until severe frosts nip it. The 
foliage and blooms are exceedingly fine. The shrub' 
is rather semi-her.baceous, by which we mean in 
some latitudes it will lie down to the ground and 
while perfectly hardy, we recommend covering the 
roots with manure, leaves or other suitable ma- 
terials as winter approaches, as this will produce a 
heavy growth the following season. This shrub is 
very desirable as an individual specimen in the 
lawn and garden, or placed promiscuously in the 
shrubbery border. Fine plants, 25 cents. Strong, 
plants, 50 cents each. 





(Ornamental Box.) 
(Sempervirens) — Useful for edging- and bordering 
walks, etc. A handsome shrub with deep green foli- 
age. This is not as dwarf as the Sempervirens 
Nana, but we find it so much more vigorous and 
hardy that we advise planting this and trimming 
to height required. 20 cents each; $1.50 per dozen, 

Calycanthus Floridus 

(Carolina Allspice or Sweet Scented Shrub.) 

A most desirable shrub. The wood is fragrant; 
flowers of a rare chocolate color, having a peculiar 
agreeable odor that is very penetrating. They 
blossom in June and at intervals afterwards. Fine 
plants, 25 cents; strong two-year-old plants, 50 cts. 


Their fine habit, luxuriant foliage and profusion 

of bloom render them among the most beautiful of 

shrubs. They flower the latter part of June. 

DEITZIA CREXATA (Fl. PI.) — Flowers double

ing masses of yellow, very early in the spring be- 
fore the leaves appear. The bark of the young 
twigs is bright green. 35 cents each.

some, broad, dark, green leaves. Fine for indi- 
vidual specimens. 35 cents each.

shrub. One of the finest shrubs for ornamental

The King of All Shrubs 



Hills of Snow 

The Most Valuable Hardy Shrub Ever Introduced. 
Plant in the Fall. 

This is the great new hardy shrub that has come 
to gladden our yards and gardens. We place it first 
and foremost of all shrubs. It makes a perfectly 
round, symmetrical bush that is covered from June 
to August with handsome, large, pure white flow- 
ers. Be sure and plant this new hardy shrub — it 
will please you greatly. Young plants, 25 cents; 
strong two-year plants, 50 cents. 

Hydrangea Paniculata Grandiflora 

A great favorite, and there is nothing finer or 
more showy, whether for planting in large masses 
in parks or for single plants on the smallest lawns. 
Blooms profusely from July until frost, in immense 
white panicles, tinted with pink and then with 
brown in the fully matured flower. The plant should 
be cut back each spring fully one-half of the past 
season's growth, as the flowers are much finer if 
the plant is treated in this manner. The flowers 
are much finer and larger if grown in a good, rich 
soil, but the plant is so hardy and so easily grown 
that success is almost certain in any kind of soil 
and in any situation. Young plants, 30 cents. Strong 
flowering plants, for immediate effect, two years 
old, 60 cents.
